I need advice. I am a medical assistant. Ok I went to school for MA because I had no idea what I wanted to do. I am horrible at taking the ACT test (like the SAT), so i couldnt get into the college i wanted to after taking that damn test about three times and still not making a 19 on it. I kept making a 16, a 17, a 18.. i felt like i was wasting my time. So i went to MA school where no ACT score was needed. I chose this because it was the basics of the medical field, and it would help me see if I even liked it. Well I ended up liking it. Anyways its been like a year or so that Ive been a MA. I quit my MA job that I had because I thought I wanted to go to nursing school. Ok, well I took the ACT again, but I needed a 21 on it, haha, I made an 18. This test has discouraged me from school so much. Anyways, Is there any program that can help Medical Assistants to get into nursing school?! I'm not stupid, I'm actually a lot smarter than a lot of students out there. I have attention deficit disorder by the way, I know thats not an excuse and I don't like telling people I have it, but it seriously has discouraged me a lot from school and succeeding to a potential I know I have.. Does anyone have any advice? Is there any news on Medical Assistants getting into Nursing school? It's frustrating. Because I know a lot and I'm a fast learner. I just sucked at five hour long tests like the ACT.
